Expression of peptidergic and nitrergic structures in dorsal root ganglia of the rabbit.

In this study we have demonstrated the presence of neuropeptide substance P (SP)and nonpeptide neurotransmiter NO (nitric oxide) in the dorsal root ganglia (DRG) of rabbits. NADPH-diaphorase histochemical staining was used for detection of NO and an immunohistochemical method for detection of substance P. A number of DRG cells were stained by SP- and NADPH… CONTINUE READING
